Wednesday, March 05, 2008:

India has decided to implement Advanced Passenger Information System (APIS) at its airports, to ensure security in aviation sector.

Junior minister for Home Affairs, Sriprakash Jaiswal Tuesday stated before the parliament that the new security arrangement would be executed from April 1.

As per the new order the country representative of an airline landing in India has to provide information about the passengers on board and crew in electronic form, within fifteen minutes of taking off of the aircraft from the port of embarkation outside India, to the immigration authority at the port(s) of landing in India.
